hopefully we'l have at least some information released about how and why he was actually arrested, so that we can know whether he was a legitimate suspect, or whether someone just fingered him for fingerings sake.
then, and only then can we really get the left-right argument over human rights up and running.
sure, if he was actually involved in terrorist activities, then he deserved to be arrested. then the argument has to move to whether his treatment at the hands of the US military, and australia's reticience to intervene, was justified.
if he was illegitmately arrested, then the subject is completely different.
